Preface:

Supplication for the

Blessing of Living Buddha

Lian-sheng

 

Om, Ah, Hum.

With reverence I offer my purified body, speech and mind to Mahavairocana.

The Holy Buddha Locana is the Dharma body, Padmakumara is the bliss body.

Living Buddha Lian-sheng is the emanation body. These three bodies being the same inessence as the Buddha’s grace.

Homage to his True Buddha lineage and to his transcendent power which encompasses the whole universe.

Radiating light throughout the three times, he can manifest himself instantaneously.

Disciples of the Buddha should constantly cry out for his pure light, which magnifies virtue and wisdom.

In the past, his Buddhahood was prophesied by Shakyamuni Buddha. Amitabha Buddhaen trusted him with the mission of salvation.

Maitreya Bodhisattva bestowed on him the red crown. Guru Padmasambhava taught him the tantra.

We pray you never abandon your past vows to liberate us all.

As you enfold us in protection and care, empower us to quickly attain realization.

Namo Mahavairocana Buddha.

Namo Buddha Locana.

Namo Padmakumara.

Namo Living Buddha Lian-sheng.

Namo the True Buddha Assembly, all buddhas, bodhisattvas, and mahasattvas everywhere throughout the three times.

Do not underestimate this short prayer of supplication. If one is able to recite this passage prior to cultivation, the merit will be as deep as the ocean and the Dharma power will be as towering as Mt. Sumeru. One who recites this supplication every day will manifest inconceivable power.

The merit is as follows:

1. The Buddha will manifest his golden body.

2. Universally shining brilliant light.

3. Rebirth in heaven.

4. Eradication of sickness.

5. Liberation from suffering.

6. Elimination of karmic hindrances.

7. Increased good fortune.

8. Replete in wisdom.

9. All wishes fulfilled.

10. Swift attainment of Buddhahood.

(This supplication is a very important key cultivation formula.)

At noon on May 18 of the Yiyou Year, I, Living Buddha Lian-sheng Sheng-Yen Lu, was born into the human realm. At the age of 26, Jade Pond Golden Mother opened my divine sight.

I saw:

Jade Pond Golden Mother.

Amitabha Buddha.

Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva.

They bestowed on me these words: “Single-mindedly study Buddhism. Single-mindedly practice. Single-mindedly perform good deeds.” Lord Indra bestowed on me the two words “Loyalty and Righteousness.” I was later guided to personally see my predecessor, Padmakumara.

I then paid homage to eminent and highly virtuous monks, learned the Buddhadharma, and attained great accomplishment in Sutrayana and Vajrayana. I founded True Buddha School and raised the banner of Buddhadharma.

After attaining Buddhahood, I manifested supernatural power, was unhindered, possessed skillful means, brought the dead back to life, commanded wind and rain, cured illnesses and banished demons, emanated countless bodies, ascended to heaven and entered into the earth, and became the guru of celestial and human beings.

Wherever the banner of Buddhadharma is, the Dharma rain falls.  More than five million sentient beings have been saved. More than 70 Lei Tsang Temples have been established. My footprints have been all over the world and five continents.

I bestowed empowerments on sentient beings, discoursed the Buddhadharma, and have delivered countless sentient beings. My activities have been utterly unprecedented.

(As for the above supplication, if one recites it daily, spiritual responses will come one after another. For this reason, it is an important key cultivation formula.)
